Mesut Ozil posts cheeky Tottenham tweet ahead of north London derby

The Arsenal star will go to Tottenham Hotspur with the aim of 'robbing' three points!

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil was in cheeky mood on Friday afternoon, ahead of Saturday afternoon's north London derby.

Tottenham host Arsenal in the Premier League's early kick-off, with Everton later facing Liverpool in the second big derby of the day (Merseyside).

And Ozil took to Twitter ahead of the huge clash to express his aim of 'robbing' all three points from White Hart Lane.

Tottenham left the Emirates Stadium with a point earlier this season, when Spurs drew 1-1 with the Gunners on their turf.

Now, however, the north London side will have home advantage as Arsenal visit - potentially without the injured Alexis Sanchez.

But both teams are in form and Ozil is one of what will no doubt be the first of many to take to social media before and after the derby to exchange jokes, celebrations and possibly digs at their rivals.

The 26-year-old himself was in inspired form last weekend, scoring and assisting as Arsenal thumped Aston Villa 5-0. Tottenham, though, delivered an arguably better achievement, beating West Brom 3-0 away from home.

It's all to play for, then, and Saturday promises to be a memorable occasion. Can Ozil and co spoil the party for Spurs?
